Why is it guns of icarus and not guns of daedalus?
LOL but daedalus built the wings and icarus was his son that got too close to the sun and died.

Because this game is more about dieing in airships than building them.

Because the ship in the first game was called Icarus.

Let me smoke some weed and pull out a pseudo-philosphical explanation from my booty pipe:

Daedalus means "Clever Worker" in greek. The mythological Daedalus was a craftsman and one of a kind. He built the wings for Icarus, his son and the one who got too close to the sun and burnt his wings.

Guns of Icarus is the never ending death of brave Sky Sailors and Pirates whose sole purpose on this earth is to destroy each and every one that gets closer to the sun. Because there is only ONE Icarus and that'll be the one that gets as closer to the sun before getting rekt by someone else. Thus the name, Guns of Icarus. A game of perpetual death and demise, where ships are rektby the minute in their quest of touching the sun.
Daedalus was the one who built Icarus' wings, but Icarus was the one who flew. We're the ones flying and getting ships rekt, so we're the Guns of Icarus..

I remember when I was informed of my sons death on his newly built mobula:
*phone rings*
"Is this Systema?"
"Sir, I am sorry to inform you that your son was rekt"
That's when I decided to put my tinfoil hat on and sail to the skies like a bawss

420 blaze it.

Now let me be serious for a second and give a more down to earth answer: It's called Guns of Icarus the same reason Hideaki Anno named his pseudo-mecha series Neon Genesis Evangelion, and that reason is "because it sounds cool".

Because nobody REMEMBERS Daedalus. Icarus is the name people are familiar with from that story.
